Tim Foot

With nearly 30 years of experience as a leader, pastor, coach, speaker, musician, and presenter in Australia and North America, Tim brings a diverse background in church, nonprofit, and for-profit environments to his role as CEO/President of Slingshot Group. Throughout his time at Slingshot, Tim and the teams he’s led have staffed and coached well over a thousand churches, organizations, and leaders. For Tim, this work provides a perfect combination of strategic leadership and relational connection, allowing him to invest in teams in tandem with serving leaders. Tim believes, “When the mission of the leader and the mission of the organization line up, that’s when the magic happens! Alignment is everything, and the best investment you’ll ever make is in your leaders.” Tim lives in Denver, Colorado, with his wife, Mandy, and their two sons.
